  • SI-3D Stereo 3D Camera System Silicon Imaging, the company that enabled the digital shooting of the Oscar winning Best Picture Slumdog Millionaire, is now changing the face of stereo production. SI-3D is the world’s first integrated 3D Cinema quality camera and stereo visualization system. It shoots uncompressed raw 2K or HD footage from two synchronized cameras, outputs dual video streams for independent Left/Right or Stereo Mixed displays and records directly to a single stereo QuickTime file along with 3D LUT color and convergence metadata. The 3D content can be instantly edited, without the need for proxy conversion or ingestion. SI-3D streamlines the entire stereo-3D content acquisition and post production workflow. Integrated Capture, Control, Recording & 3D Display The SI-3D system uses two remote head SI-2K Mini cameras with an P+S interchange lens mount connected to a single processing system via gigabit Ethernet where they are synchronized and controlled through the powerful and simple SiliconDVR touchscreen interface. On-set, each camera can be viewed individually or in 50/50, Side-by-Side, Anaglyph & Wiggle modes on standard 2D displays. It can also output mixed modes including: side-by-side, line-interlaced and Mesh for live 3D viewing and transmission. 11-Stops Dynamic range & POV Shooting The SI-3D delivers film like image quality with 11-Stops of dynamic range, and 12-bit uncompressed raw directly to mobile 2.5” SSD (Solid State Drives), with peak rates up to 200Mbytes/sec. Each 250 GB drive can store up to 1-hour of footage from Left or Right. The camera's form factor and flexible lens mounting system enable use lightweight beam-splitter and parallel rigs to shoot steadicam, hand-held and helmet mounted. Visualization Tools (Focus, Expose and Align) Various tools are used to visualize and adjust the focus, lighting and 3-D effects including alignment grid overlays, false color zebras, digital zooming, edge detection, spot meters, dual histograms, parallax shifts, anaglyph mixing and wiggle displays. For shot continuity, an integrated Frame Store, enables the operator to grab an image from playback and realign cameras using 50% overlays. There is even a Built-In Green/Blue Screen Keyer. Real-Time Editing, Color DI Grading & Worflow Integration Unlike modern HD cameras, which develop and compress colorized imagery, the SI system captures raw "digital negatives" where they are non-destructively developed and colorized for preview using the desired "look" for the scene. These files can be edited directly in Apple Final Cut with CineForm’s Neo-3D and post processed with Iridas FrameCycler and Speedgrade XR. These tools also enable conversion to Apple ProRes 422/444 and AVID DNxHD.
